This week our research spotlight is on Dr Andrew Shevchuk at Imperial College London. Dr Shevchuk and his PhD student, Tayyibah Ali, are investigating how mutations associated with some types of centronuclear myopathy and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) affect an essential cell process called endocytosis, which allows cells to take up nutrients and replenish their cell membranes.
